Marta Altesa: Paul Young’s “Everytime You Go Away” Play-Along

When we first featured bassist Marta Altesa, she knocked us out with her Jamiroquai play-along. The video showcased her great playing, but what really blew us away was the fact she started playing bass less than three years ago.

Marta stunned us again with a new a new video of her playing along to Paul Young’s “Everytime You Go Away”. That tune of course features the terrific fretless work and musicianship of Pino Palladino.

Marta nails every note. But once again, Marta is showing skill that defies her years of experience: this is the first time she played a tune on fretless. She even had to borrow the bass.

If she can do this already, we can’t imagine there’s any limit to what Marta will pull off in the future. And we can’t wait to see what’s next.
